What makes Juvéderm® Vollure different from other Juvéderm® fillers?
Juvéderm® Vollure XC is an injectable filler that is designed to smooth moderate to severe nasolabial folds, or deeper creases around the nose and mouth. Like all Juvéderm® products, Vollure XC is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that helps keep skin plump and hydrated. What’s different about JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ is that it was shown to last up to 18 months; 6 months longer than most hyaluronic acid fillers.
Thanks to VYCROSS, Vollure XC contains the optimal ratio of larger-to-smaller hyaluronic acid molecules to create a smooth and soft, yet slightly firmer gel that sits beautifully beneath the skin to smooth out deeper creases, while moving naturally with your facial expressions.
Where in the face is Juvéderm® Vollure injected?
The safety and effectiveness of Vollure has been demonstrated in several clinical trials here in the U.S. In clinical trials, a majority (59%) of patients saw an improvement in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, which lasted for up to 18 months when performed by a trained professional. Patient satisfaction in the pivotal study was also high: 82% of patients said they were very satisfied at 6 months and 68% at 18 months post treatment.
Juvéderm® Vollure is commonly injected:
- Laugh Lines (Parentheses lines)
- Marionette Lines
- Horizontal Chin Lines
It’s important to note that an injectable filler is only as good as the provider administering it. Many of our providers are certified Allergan trainers, which means that they aren’t just skilled at providing these treatments, they teach other physicians and nurses on proper injection techniques. At Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa, you’re in the best hands.
What should I expect during my consultation and prior to treatment?
During your consultation, our providers will collect your medical history and discuss your specific concerns and desired results. We will do a thorough examination to determine which treatment methods would suit your needs best and make sure Vollure is the right solution to provide you with the results you desire while also ensuring you’re a good candidate for treatment.
What should I expect after my Vollure treatment?
Every patient will receive specific aftercare instructions from their providers. For seven days following treatment, patients should expect some temporary redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site, including some minor tenderness. We advise that patients avoid NSAID painkillers, as these can increase bruising and bleeding. After seven days, swelling should subside. During a follow-up appointment, we will then examine the results and ensure the treatment was effective. As every patient is different, individual results vary, with some patients requiring a follow-up treatment to improve results.
Who is a good candidate for Vollure treatments?
Patients over the age of 21 who are in relatively good health and wish to fill or restore volume to the face are considered good candidates for this treatment. Vollure is considered safe for most patients, with some exceptions. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or other ingredients in the filler should not receive Vollure. During your consultation, it’s important to notify our providers if you have any allergies so we can determine if Vollure is safe for you. As with all injectables, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive dermal filler treatments.
